Question about iLO DVDRH04 DVD Recorder

2 Answers

DVD recorder My DVDRH04 DVD burner has stopped working properly. When playing a DVD it will stop and start, picture on screen freezes,sound continues ok. I've tried a DVD cleaner dics and even opened the case and cleaned the lens manually. Still same problem. It has a Lite On DVD burner. My question is, can this be swapped out? I see Tiger Direct has a new Lite On DVD RW for about $35. Would if work with the ilo firmware? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: DVD recorder

What did you use to clean the head......I have always used rubbing alcohol with a cotton swab. Works every time.

Recording from VHS to DVDR was going fine,then I stopped getting a picture. DVD player is fine plays back recordings etc. However tape player starts to play shows picture then stops showing video and...

Possibly dirty video heads. I would suggest that you run a head-cleaning tape through the VCR deck to shift surface dirt off the heads. If that doesn't work, or it sort of works, but not satisfactorily, unplug unit, carefully remove top cover, and with the VCR deck in view, gently clean the heads with a soft cloth or special cleaning stick (these look like flat q-tips but are intended for VCRs - available from electronics/hobby stores) and some alcohol (methylated spirit will work if that's all you got - but isopropyl alcohol is recommended - available from the same places as the sticks) clean the guides (gently so as not to disturb their alignment) clean the pinch roller/capstan shaft - CTL (on the right-hand side of the drum) and FE (left side) heads as well. The whole tape path should be carefully cleaned. Refit top cover (carefully), plug unit back into power, wait until it completes its startup/loading procedure, then put a tape in. You should now have a playback picture with the sound. You only need to do this as required if head-cleaning cassettes don't work properly.

If none of the above cures your problem, then the heads are abraded/worn - let's hope that isn't the case here. This model does not use a built-in head cleaner.

Ilo-DVDR04 recorder problems

The laser is either dirty or is starting to go.These lasers in this model usually only last two years.To clean but a commercial disc cleaner philips or Maxell work good in this model.Put a drop of rubbing alcohol on brushes this helps clean laser.I would do this every 15 hours of use .The best way to clean laser is to rub gently with a Qtip soaked in rubbing alcohol but this requires some technical knowledge for you have to open burner.If you attempt this make certain electrical plug is pulled lasers cause nasty burns.
If laser is going you can replace the burner/loader unit,this model uses a 411s or 451s Liteon burner.The 401s and 813s will also work without problem.
